Brownstown Police officers responded to a report of a woman yelling for someone to call the police at Village Apartments in the 700 block of Bloomington Road, according to a police news release.

When police arrived they learned that two men kicked in the door, forced their way into a woman's apartment and demanded stereo equipment, the press release stated. The woman told officers that the males left when she yelled out for help.

The woman and other witnesses described the vehicle the two men left in and identified them as Caleb Scott Silvers, 19; and his brother, Cody M. Silvers, 19; both of Norman; the press release stated.

Officers later located the vehicle parked at the Jackson-Jennings Co-Op in Brownstown.

The Silvers brothers were later located with two other people during a traffic stop made by Jackson County Sheriff's officers on U.S. 50 near Wray's Church Road in the western part of the county.
